Na Wahine Swim Route
- Practice your transitions. During a triathlon, athletes must change their gear and equipment between the swim and the bike legs and again between the bike and the run. Practicing transitions beforehand will minimize the time you spend in T1 and T2.
- Perform race-specific training including swimming, biking and running. Keep your race volume race specific; do not do more than you need do and for sprints, work on your speed.
- Perform brick training, doing at least 2 of the 3 sports a few times per week. Brick training allows you to experience how your body will likely feel during the race, helping you to anticipate and adapt to prep for the changes from swim to bike and bike to run.
- Prepare for race week by reducing the intensity and volume of your training while also keeping your nutrition clean and in moderation. Training during the week of their race will not make you more physically fit, faster or stronger - rather, the opposite is true; therefore, reduce your triathlon training by 30 percent.
